After injuring both his arms in a bicycle accident and cancelling some of his upcoming concerts, there were fears that Ed Sheeran might have to cancel his concert in Kuala Lumpur on November 14 this year.
Well, fans can relax as Ed’s doctor has cleared him to to resume his tour from his Singapore show and onwards, he announced in a statement today. Which means, yes, the November 14 Kuala Lumpur show will go on as planned!
But it’s not all good news, because a large proportion of his earlier shows will still need to be rescheduled or cancelled entirely. While the Osaka, Tokyo and Manila shows will be rescheduled for April 2018, the Taipei, Seoul, Hong Kong and Jakarta will have to be cancelled with no foreseeable rescheduled date.
“It’s a difficult decision to make, but I physically can’t play at the moment,” he explains in a video, apologising for having to cancel shows for the first time ever in his career.
Aww, Ed. We hope he makes a speedy recovery. And with all things, health should always come first.
Read his full statement below:
“A follow-up visit to my doctors today confirmed that I will be good to go from the Singapore shows onwards. Osaka, Tokyo and Manila will be rescheduled for April 2018. My dates in Taipei, Seoul, Hong Kong and Jakarta will sadly need to be cancelled as it’s just been impossible to reschedule these for next year. I’m really gutted that not all the postponed dates could be rescheduled and I am working hard with my team to try and come back to these places as soon as I can to see all of you. I’m sorry to everyone who has been affected by this.”
